That's a pretty reasonable point about being more critical of the person closer to my age. Makes sense. But although I guess I don't condone "cheating" as a really great idea for a marriage, I don't think it's necessarily as awful of a thing to do as we (our society, I guess) tends to make it out to be. Adultery is addressed by the TEN COMMANDMENTS, for God's sake! I think if we all chilled out about it we'd be a lot happier and could address cheating, when it happened, in a healthier way instead of putting it on the same list as "Thou shalt not kill."

That being said, this particular dad is also clearly being a douche; but his tragic flaw is his epic douchery, not the fact that he cheated alone. (all my opinion, of course)

I quite agree it is nothing like equivalent to "Thou shalt not kill." Things change a bit, though, when there are kids involved.

We should be more like the bonobos.
